Michael Phelps smokes a bong!

A photograph of Michael Phelps smoking from a bong has surfaced recently. His status as a national hero for his performance in the Olympics could therefore be in jeopardy.

On the other hand, this could be a big argument for proponents of marijuana legalization. How could weed be that harmful if a smoker can win more medals than anyone ever and set numerous world records?

So what do you think? At the very least we know why he was eating so much...the munchies ;)

" He grabbed the bong and lit it, you could tell He had done it before " One source said. OMG a college party and and and Michael Phelps knows how to use a bong!? Lets all freak out!!!! I do not see why this is such a huge problem. Why don't we all look at it in this aspect, if he knows how to use a bong then we must assume he has used one before. If we can assume that then maybe we should also assume that weed helps you swim. Honestly people need to relax.

I'm so confused! Obama says that he used to smoke pot and he becomes a national hero, but Michael Phelps does it and now everyone is breathing down his neck! WTF is up with that?!

I never thought about that.

Obama smokes weed: becomes president

Phelps smokes weed: wins gold medals

Maybe (gasp) weed is the answer to success!
